Numerical Methods: Algorithms and Applications

For upper-level undergraduate and graduate two-semester sequence courses, or for any of several different one-term courses, depending on course emphasis. This text presents the fundamental numerical techniques used in engineering, applied mathematics, computer science, and the physical and life sciences in a manner that is both interesting and understandable. Each topic is illustrated by examples that range in complexity from very simple to moderate and are supported by geometrical or graphical illustrations where appropriate. A detailed algorithm is given for each method.
